COMEDIAN Dalin Oliver is presenting his third solo stand-up comedy show, Adulting, in Durban soon – and five lucky SoSuterBill.com followers, plus their partners, will be attending the 8pm performance on Saturday, August 31, free of charge.

For more details on how to win double tickets to the show on August 31, see the end of this story.

Written and performed by Dalin, and directed by Stuart Taylor, Adulting will be presented at 8pm on August 30 and 31 at the Happy Hippo Comedy Club, 222 Mahatma Gandhi Road, in central Durban.

Tickets cost R100 each and booking is via www.quicket.co.za or by phoning  083 426 7504.

Comedian and ace radio jock, Dalin Oliver, one of the rising stars of the South African comedy scene, was born in Retreat, Cape Town. He is a former high school mathematics and history teacher whose previous solo stand-up successes were I Came, I Taught, I Left and Face For Radio, both also directed by Stuart Taylor.

Oliver recently turned 30 and noticed that people expect him to have it all together when in actual fact, it’s all falling apart. Not literally, okay sometimes, but figuratively, mostly, because each day leads to more challenges and confusion about how to survive in the “big world”. Adulting is soooooo hard people.

No one warned him about the panic he’ll experience at the end of the month when debit orders decide to visit. Or about the stress of moving out and living on your own because you want to be independent.

Independent, in this case, loosely translates to no home-cooked food until further notice, forgetting to take dirty washing to the laundry and learning that flats don’t come fully furnished.

Somehow, they also never sent him the memo on how to deal with parents who are experiencing empty-nest syndrome because their youngest has decided to spread his wings and start figuring out life on his own.

Oliver’s signature nostalgic story-telling comedic style is something to look forward to once again. This time featuring life hacks and stories that just might feel a little too familiar.

Oliver started his on-stage journey in 2010 and has captured audiences with his clean-cut, energetic brand of comedy that has been described as easily accessible, nostalgic and diverse in the best kind of way.

He is one half of Good Hope FM’s SA Comics Choice Award-nominated comedy radio show, Happy Hour, as well as the Sports Presenter on the weekday Breakfast show.

His passion for the performance arts was triggered in 2010 when he won the UCT leg of Good Hope FM’s Campus DJ Search. A few months later the comedy bug bit and he ditched the chalk board for a microphone and the stage.

Career highlights including being featured on Comedy Central Africa, releasing his DVD for I Came, I Taught I Left, making his big-screen debut as one of the lead actors in SA action comedy Finders Keepers and being one of the featured acts at the Jive Cape Town Funny Festival.

He has also been seen as the opening act for industry stalwarts such as Riaad Moosa, Barry Hilton, Stuart Taylor and Nik Rabinowitz.
